Does Trump Really "Get It" In The Middle East?

First, my take on the MIddle East and Jews in general:

There is a tacit alliance between Israel in Saudi Arabia and the Gulf states and other Arab/Muslim countries. This alliance opposes the Iranians and Assad of Syria quite forcefully and is adamant about it, which is why you hear so much anti-Iran rhetoric from our lickspittle politicians.

This is also related to domestic Jewish overwhelming support for just about any kind of behavior from the Israeli governments. I hasten to add that many Christian groups and American politicians also demonstrate such support.

Jews in America tend to be overrepresented among the left, all the way from the classical marxists to the cultural marxists, but again, they're accompanied in this by appallingly self-destructive Christian and Secular (not much difference there these days) groups. And there are a lots of patriotic American Jews who oppose the left as much as I do.

As for Israel, I'm no Zionist. As a Middle Eastern country, I regard it as rather free and enlightened. As a European country, it's repressive and authoritarian, and deserves little respect and no financial aid from us.

I don't agree with everything Eric Margolis says below. For example, I see no reason think Trump "hates" Islam. I rather expect he thinks like I do — that it's fine in Islamic countries if they want it, but incompatible with the West and Muslims shouldn't be granted entry for that reason.

But what I'm hoping, of course, is that Trump's take on the area is similar to mine, and that his behavior is an attempt to take reality into account while preventing hostility on the left from growing enough to cause a liberal/neocon alliance to develop strong enough to stop his agenda. So to answeer my own question, I hope he gets it but I can't be sure. You ever notice how hard it is to type with your fingers crossed? This is from lewrockwell.com

    So, Iranians are really OK guys that are just minding their own business? Maybe the only truth in the Near and Middle East is that Muslim countries should be segregated from the rest of the world.

  2. Donald Duck went from Reagan 2.0 to Bush League of Ziosupremacy damn quick didn't he? All that Amerikwan First turned into Kosher Bacon. We need Israel like we need Monkey Virus Vectors, which is NOT AT ALL. Islam was kissing our feet before the Rothschild built their Empire of Sand. Let those weasels send their kids to protect their Holy Sandpile. We have problems here at home, and that Foreign Policy smells like Little Jebbie at Cuckmart all over again.
